Thousands of Hungarians protested in Budapest on Saturday against what organizers said was an unfair election system that gave Prime Minister Viktor Orban another landslide victory in the polls.

Organizers called for a recount of ballots, free medias, a new election law, as well as more cooperation among opposition parties.

The demonstrators marched towards parliament, chanting: “We are the majority” and calling Orban “the dictator”.

Last Sunday, Orban won a third term in office after his anti-immigration campaign secured a strong majority for his ruling Fidesz party.
